    They kept showing Carmelo in the video and had to take it down because she wasn't talking about him. That's what they get for just assuming instead of making a generic video

    People don't get this, but a "decade" team that has a specific start and a specific end date will necessarily create funny results, because players' careers don't automatically line up with the decades. So, for example, Dirk had an amazing Finals and a Finals MVP within the decade, but if you take his decade's body of work as a whole, he's not a top 15 player. He has SEVEN seasons in this decade in which he couldn't crack the All-NBA team (1st-3rd). The reason Dirk is going to be a Hall of Famer, aside from longevity, is his body of work in the PREVIOUS decade, NOT this one. Just to take one comparison: Dirk has 3 All NBA selections in the past 10 years; LeMarcus Aldridge has 5. But if you compare worst season of the decade to worst season of the decade, Dirk looks REALLY bad in this comparison with Aldridge. And Kobe has actually been retired for 1/3 of the decade; the fact that Kobe scored exactly the same number of NBA points in 2017-18 as Miley Cyrus did COUNTS; 2017-18 is part of the decade.

    But I agree that Carmelo's 2nd team seems too high.

    Bottom line: the real world doesn't automatically line up with years that end in zero. So if you're going to nonetheless give awards based on decades, you'll end up with all-time greats not making the list. It's literally possible to be the single greatest player in a 2 decade period without being top 5 in either decade, and it's literally possible to be a top 5 player in a 2 decade period and be barely top 15 in one of those decades.

    So Klay Thompson missed it despite being a 2-time All NBA guy? Okay, so which player with 2 or fewer All-NBA selections made the team? THAT is the guy who should be removed in order to make space for Klay. If you can't find one, then Klay doesn't belong there. If the consensus puts you in the top 15 only twice in the decade– and never in the top 10– then it shouldn't be surprising not to be regarded as top 15 for the whole decade.

    Wait… someone's actually going to suggest Kevin Garnett for THIS decade's top 15? He literally has as many All NBA selections this decade as Justin Bieber does. (Though, to be fair, he did make All Defense 3 times early in the decade). Like, there never was a single season in the whole decade in which he was voted a top 15 player, and he has been retired for 1/3 of the decade. C'mon, this is a list based on a specific time period, not a list of players who played at some moment in this decade and were awesome in a different decade.
